Cupping and Cellulite

Updated: Nov 11, 2020

Cellulite affects about 90% of women; the presence of cellulite is directly influenced by the biological structure of women's skin layers, more so than the actual amount of fat in the body. Wastes that have not been properly eliminated can tend to accumulate in the layer of adipose tissue beneath the skin, which results in a bulging of the cells.

The use of suction cupping penetrates deeply into the hypo-dermis to help break up and smooth out the dimples, allowing the area to be contoured. The suction lifts and separates the layers of tissue, increasing micro-circulation of the cells. This encourages the exchange of water and other nutrients to enter and wastes to be removed. The suction also encourages collagen and elastin production, responsible for the elasticity of the skin and connective tissue.

Lymphatic drainage is performed to carry away the excess wastes, resulting in an overall reduction of bloat and inflammation. The result is noticeably smoother, firmed, and lifted skin!
